Twelve-year old Jack Mac Paidin's life is miserable. His parents are dead, and he's stuck with his heartless aunt and uncle, who make him live in the cold, dank basement.
Then his life takes a crazy turn when he touches a golden telescope that reveals he has magical abilities. He learns that he comes from a long line of magic workers who want to use his powers for their nefarious purposes. A mysterious visitor rescues him using a magic hat and takes him to his ancestral home in Dublin, Ireland.
Though Jack's life at Mac Paidin Manor is much better than it was living in the basement, things are far from perfect. There is a dangerous organization called The Dark Cabal, and Jack learns that it is responsible for killing his parents and separating him from his brother and sister. Confronting them will bring him into contact with forces more terrifying than he ever could have imagined.
After years of trauma-related asthma attacks and life as a number-loving nerd, Jack finally feels like his life has meaning. Even though he is bewildered to discover that there is a world of magic he knows nothing about, Jack learns that he is special. He is the only person who can help find his Grandma Lydia trapped in the past and solve the mystery surrounding his parent's death.
Most days we post a link to a free (at time of post) Kindle download for kids/young adults. One of the most important things we can do as parents is read with our kids! Exposure to reading can help children with early literacy and pave the way for success in school (and beyond!) as they get older.
Our hope is that these posts will help keep your digital library fresh with new material perfect for bedtime reading with babies, toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged, and even teens. You do not need a kindle to download or read these books with your child, just download the Kindle App to your device, or use the Kindle Cloud Reader on your computer. Enjoy!
